Guard Items - Situation statuswise?

0
So I have some questions about guard items. These came up when I got a 'Bracers of the Sun and Moon' which offer chance of 4d8 damage on being hit or missed to four damage types. Searching through various threads, this is what I came up with.

1. All guard items are currently bugged and only do 1d6 damage on proc regardless of what the damage type says.
Questions: Do guard items that use d8 do 1d8 on proc or is it 1d6 for all?

2. Different damage types will all proc their chance to do damage, so theoretically BoSaM could do 4d6 on hit...but 1d6 is more likely.

3. Stacking the same damage type gives multiple chances to proc, but only one will actually go off. (And because of item 1, it will do 1d6)

Did I cover it all? Does this mean don't bother with guard items past level 3?
